Ours was good, just hectic. We need to find a way next year to have some time with just our little family together. More than just an hour, lol. But it was good, and C got lots of cool stuff! My dad paid for six months of housecleanings for us, that was probably my favorite gift!
DoesItComeInPink is your milk soy free too? There is a boy about our kiddos age with FPIES that can only tolerate dairy and soy free breastmilk, no other foods. His mom can't nurse any more so they will pay to ship it to them if you have about 100 oz or more- if you want to send that milk to a good home I've been pumping every day to bring up my stash from 50 oz to send.
We survived! Last day of my family here. We had family pictures yesterday, hopefully they turned out well! And when we were leaving and waiting at a light my parents rental car got rear ended. Ugh. Not what we needed. Margs is still working through the wheat I ate the other day. Her favorite present was a Peppa pig sweat shirt that Clara got in 5T. She insists on having it put on lol. DH is starting to feel better finally and my cold is ramping up. 'Tis the season.
My sisters and I are taking Clara to a trampoline park today! I hope it's fun
We had a great Christmas. My parents stayed overnight and went to church with us and then my sister and BIL joined us on Sunday. No one went overboard with gifts. Ari loves his new toys though. I'm off this week, but it's been a little difficult since A is back to not napping. H is off today and I'm already annoyed. A was awake at 5:45 so H got him and then brought him in bed to play at 6:30. I told H last night that he needed to get going with breakfast at 7 to maintain some schedule. Well, H fell asleep (typical) and didn't get up until 7:45 (A and I were also sleeping- it was my day to sleep in. So, who knows what today will look like. I'm trying to improve my attitude before I go downstairs for the day.
I am drinking all of the coffee this morning. M woke up screaming bloody murder at 1:00am and it took until 1:30 to get him calmed down enough to fall asleep on the couch with me. Only to have him wake up when my alarm went off at 5. Not enough sleep for either of us. I am hoping it is just a holiday hangover but I stuck my fingers in his mouth and felt some bumps towards the back so I am fearing molars. We dosed him with Tylenol and it seemed to help. He also has a little cough so that added some problems.
I found out this morning that his primary daycare teacher is leaving and Friday is her last day. I don't really care for the girl that is going to be filling in until they hire a permanent replacement. I really want to ask that M be moved to another teacher's group but I know that will cause problems with rearranging so I am trying to convince myself he will be fine. I think I will give it a week and see where I am with it. I hate change and I really liked/trusted his teacher.
byjove, geners, and HelgaHuffle (and any other bandana bib moms) Copper Pearl has a few new sets that are on sale for $17.95 on Amazon right now. I bought M THIS set and am super excited for them to get here. His old bibs are looking downright nasty. I am going to try soaking them in OxiClean but if that doesn't work they are going in the trash and I am ordering another new set or two.

Super busy in here.
Guys. I think my 2.5 year old is trying to drop his nap. Hold me. He's also spending a lot of time hanging out on his crib rails.....I don't want to transition to a big bed!!!!!!!! Why can't I ever have kids that nap until age 5?!
Any other clingy LOs? DD wants held all.the.time. she signs all done when she is eating so I will hold her and then she wants to sit in my lap and eat. DNW toddler eating in my lap. She is also wanting held just in general. FX this is a phase (she generally likes to be held a lot, but she has really ramped up the last few days)
Mine! He really never loved to be held, but now he's just clinging to us. No naps except for on someone and he wakes up at night and flat out screams if you try to put him back in the crib.

Hi all! We had a great Christmas. It looks like a toy factory exploded in here. =/ But we took the Christmas tree down today and it made thing feel a million times less cluttered. I just need to go on a toy purge now. The 3.5 (how is he 3.5!?!) year old has acted very 3.5 today. Things had been going so well. He usually stays with my parents on Wednesday nights and the grandparent hangover seems to be lasting longer and longer every week. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!
RoLoMa, Thanks! I got R THESE for Christmas, but he really could use some more. The old ones all look pretty gross. Let me know if the Oxiclean soak helps. The ones you ordered are adorable! He somehow ended up with $100 cash between his bday and Christmas O.O So I might order him that set you linked or the Woodland set. It's weird that I went months without putting a bib on him, but for the last 2 or so months he's HAD to have one on.

Both girls had a great Christmas and got a ton of stuff. I swear we have every little people set. H has been home all week so that's been nice but throws the girls off a little bit. Christmas Eve, day and day after consisted of barely napping for both kids so everyone has been catching up. We went to ikea yesterday to buy more storage stuff for their toys. I love that I have two girls and can buy all pink.
HelgaHuffle, I really love the woodland set and the one you got but I need to see if the others come clean first. I mean, I already have like 16 so it seems a bit ridiculous for me to buy more if I can get the others clean. We still have MAJOR drool so I don't see us getting away from the bibs anytime soon. I'll let you know how the soak goes. I'm hoping to get it done tomorrow or Sunday.
Margs wears a bib everyday at daycare and lately has been needing some for drool. Some are in rough shape but I'm hesitant to buy more because I don't know how much longer she'll wear them. I think she feels naked without one. Hehe it's so different from Clara- she NEVER wore bobs except for eating.
Margs is also a clinger. She has the cough pukes and is still pretty sad, but hopefully she'll turn a corner soon.
Hoping to see some friends today. I surprised DH with a fire pit yesterday (he'd been wanting one) so we had a lot of fun outside yesterday as our NYE celebration
